The Last Day of 2006

Today is the last day of 2006 and I decided to start this blog as a way to track my thoughts and feelings about losing weight and being healthy in 2007. I am sick of boring my friends and family with my incessant talk of food and exercise, so I will add my ramblings to the rest of the egotistical blogs that are over-crowding cyberspace.

Firstly, a perfunctory introduction... My name is Tully, I am 26, I live in Australia. This is my first and only blog and I am hideously bad at computers and technology, so please bear with me! There is a bit more to me then that, but I don't want to ruin the mystery this early on!

I will do my first weigh-in tomorrow morning and I am not expecting it to be pretty. I have been on a liquid diet for 4 weeks prior to Christmas and I lost 8 kilo's. Then I spent the last 10 days eating food like it was going out of fashion. One thing I have learnt is that:
  • liquid diet + binging= massive weight gain

I am not sure if you would say that I am starting this whole weight loss blog off on the wrong foot by eating Ferrero Rocher's while I type this, but New Years Eve is hardly the time for dieting. Plus, every dieter knows that you need to eat all the chocolate in the house the day before you start a diet! ;-) I am not going to beat myself up about any weight gains that I have over Christmas because I fully planned to have a 'dieting break' and get myself revitalised for 2007.

Happy New Year and good luck to everyone else starting diets tomorrow!

  1. Good on you for starting off this blog, Tully!

    If you ever need any advice with blogging and computers, feel free to drop me an email, all right?

    I was on a liquid diet for a while in 2004, so I know how you seem to just gobble the food when you let yourself have access to it since the liquid makes you think that 'THIS IS THE ONLY FOOD YOU'LL GET IN A LONG TIME SONNY, SO EAT UP!'

    [and hey, if the downstairs didn't have the alarm set, I'd be writing this comment with a bowl of gingerbread ice-cream and some dark chocolate Tim-Tams! I guess we're... even?]


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
